I was on a chocolate roll one evening and decided I wanted to try and make a chocoalte milk tart ...but not just any chocolate milk tart BUT a triple chocolate milk tart.

You don't know what a milktart is? Here let me help ...

'Melktert, which means "milk tart" in Afrikaans, is a South African dessert consisting of a sweet pastry crust containing a creamy filling made from milk, flour, sugar and eggs. The ratio of milk to egg is higher than in a traditional European custard tart or Chinese egg tart, resulting in a lighter texture and a stronger milk flavour. Some recipes require the custard to be baked in the crust, and others call for the custard to be prepared in advance, and then placed in the crust before serving. Cinnamon is often sprinkled over its surface. The milk used for the custard can also be infused with a cinnamon stick before preparation.' WIKIPEDIA

So you can see that I veered from the traditional in every way and it proved to be a winner ...

** cooks note - 
Milk tart is quite rich and so rather cut it into slices as opposed to dishing up large slices which will go wasted.
